Step 3Preheat oven to 190C/170C fan-forced. Line pastry base with baking paper. Fill with pastry weights or uncooked rice. Blind-bake for 20 minutes or until base starts to turn golden. Remove paper and weights. Bake for a further 5 minutes or until the base is cooked.
Step 4To make butterscotch sauce, melt butter (125g unsalted butter) in a saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add sugar (1 cup firmly packed brown sugar), cream (4 tbsp thickened cream) and salt (1/2 tsp sea salt flakes) and stir until combined. Bring to the boil, reduce heat slightly and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the sugar has melted and the sauce has thickened. Pour over pastry and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours or until set.
Step 5Melt chocolate (100g Cadbury Caramilk chocolate) in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Add oil (1/2 tsp vegetable oil) and stir until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Pour over slice and spread to the edges. Refrigerate until set. Cut into thick fingers to serve.
